The 2018 campaign is the 19th as head coach of the Texas State baseball program for Ty Harrington. The winningest coach in school history has led the Bobcats since 2000, and he entered the season with a 591-468-1 all-time record. He also has a 319-207 record during conference play, which includes a 59-61 mark in Sun Belt action.
Harrington has built Texas State into an annual contender both regionally and on the national stage. He owns two Southland Conference Coach of the Year honors (2009, 2011), and has won at least 29 games and posted a winning record in conference play in 16 of his 18 years at Texas State.
Harrington has led the Bobcats to three-straight Southland Conference Championships (2009, 2010, 2011), three NCAA Championship Regional appearances (2000, 2009, 2011) and a program record for most wins in a season (41 in 2009 & 2011).
Assistant Coach/Recruiting Coordinator
Steven Trout is in his third season as the hitting coach at Texas State after returning to the coaching staff prior
to the 2016 campaign. He also serves as the recruiting coordinator for the maroon and gold.
The Bobcat offense in 2017 was one of the most lethal in the Sun Belt Conference. TXST ranked inside the top three in the league in 13 different offensive categories, including batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, runs scored, hits, RBIs, doubles, home runs, total bases, total plate appearances, at bats, walks, and steals.
Trout also helped groom outfielder Teddy Hoffman, who was selected in the 15th round of the MLB Draft by the Detroit Tigers.
Volunteer Assistant Coach
The 2018 season is the first at Texas State for volunteer assistant coach Josh Blakely. The newest member of
the Bobcat coaching staff will assist with the outfielders and hitters, while also serving as the summer camp coordinator.
Blakely came to Texas State following a four-year stint as the head coach at Ranger College (Ranger, Texas) from 2013-17. He amassed 81 victories during his time leading the Rangers.
Prior to his time at Ranger, he served as the pitching coach at McMurry University (Abilene, Texas) from 2010-12. The War Hawks accumulated 61 wins over his three years.
